Another dodgy ratbag from NSW

It seems if you want to be involved in Aussie politics you have to be a corrupt ratbag…at least to be a member of the ALP.

And other politicians and the media don’t hold back in calling things how they are either. Shame our media have sold out long ago to crooks and ratbags.

Barely a fortnight ago, former senior state public servant Steve Dunn was given a frank character assessment in the State Parliament.

The occasion was a debate on a bill to abolish the controversial Game Council of NSW following a damaging review of the taxpayer-funded body by Mr Dunn in his capacity as a private consultant.

As the Shooters and Fishers Party MP Robert Brown eviscerated Mr Dunn and wondered how he could have reached his conclusions, fellow Shooters and Fishers MP Robert Borsak, enraged by the Dunn report, interjected: ”Because he’s corrupt, that’s why!”

Little did they know Mr Dunn would be named on Monday as a witness in the latest Independent Commission Against Corruption inquiry into former Labor minister Eddie Obeid.

Counsel assisting the inquiry, Ian Temby, QC, said Mr Dunn – a former director of water licensing – will be quizzed about his role in the granting of a valuable water allocation over the Obeids’ Cherrydale Park property in the Bylong Valley.

He will also feature in part of the inquiry dealing with interests Mr Obeid’s family held in commercial leases at Circular Quay, as the former chief executive of Maritime NSW.

Mr Temby said the inquiry would examine whether Mr Dunn and another former senior public servant, Mark Duffy, engaged in ”official misconduct” by using their positions to benefit the Obeids.
